The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis completed the $3.1 million transformation of its Club Lounge, as well as the upgraded Club Level accommodations. A remastered Ritz-Carlton Suite was also debuted, now with flexible layout. Involved in the renovation was Jinnie Kim, based in Boston.
Accessible via private key to guests staying on The Club Level or in the new Ritz-Carlton Suite, the Club Lounge has new seating areas, including a private nook with TV and balcony for families and small groups. Residentially inspired, the space has a photography exhibit honoring the architecture of St. Louis as seen through the eyes of local photographer Ken Konchel. The transformed Club Lounge also has a pantry.
On the same floor, Club Level guestrooms now have remastered bathrooms with new showers, light-up mirrors, in-shower shave mirrors and motion sensor lights/nightlights. New powder rooms were also introduced in the suites.
The Ritz-Carlton Suite has a Steinway Grand piano, and double balcony with skyline views. A serene palette is highlighted by pops of color, thanks to a curated collection of St. Louis art, pottery and ceramics from local artists Ted Collier and Chris Schulte. The suite also has an office with command center, TV and in-desk power incorporated into the suite's reconfigured 2,500 square feet, and flexible furnishing and layout options to serve specific requirements of guests. A suite-wide Bluetooth speaker system provides individual volume controls in each room, and a 65-inch 4K ART TV with dynamic frame can transform the device from television to personally selected art, photo or logo display.
The suite's master bathroom has a multi-head dual shower and soaker tub, while its second bathroom has a dual shower with shave mirror and six showerheads. Additionally, The Ritz-Carlton Suite has a new kitchen with appliances for baking. There is also fireplace in the dining room or outside on the double balcony.
